From the Forward from Right Here, Right Now: Prioritizing Your Personal Development During Times of Crisis
Putting together a personal development plan can seem daunting. It can feel overwhelming to put together a list of personal priorities for the future when the present feels uncertain. How do I know whom I want to be six months or a year from now when I am trying to keep myself afloat right now?
I know this from personal experience.
Since 2018 I have had to adjust how I thought about my own personal and professional development. No longer relying on an employer paying for my professional development, asking me to complete a self-assessment once a year, or even having anyone give me feedback on the work I am doing, I have had to figure out what to do next all on my own.
Coupled with trying to kick-start a new business, managing a never-ending job search, and learning to pivot my skills in the middle of a pandemic – well, it’s a wonder I can look past the next hour much less the next month or more.
But I believe we all have the capacity to at least think about the here and now. We can do one thing, something, that will propel us forward to meet our goals. This book will highlight lessons I’ve learned in the last two years in managing professional and personal goals that focus on the right here and right now, which I believe will help others propel themselves towards completing their goals.
I am hopeful that reading about my journey, and the lessons I learned, my lessons learned will help you do something that benefits you, right here, right now.
